It depends on which control panel to use.You can install cpanel,directadmin or free Kloxo ,all of them have a email system and web control panel that is very intuitive and easy to control.

By default sendmail should be there, if not, install sendmail using yum

yum install sendmail*
If you opt for a control panel like cPanel, Plesk etc, they install different mail servers like exim, qmail, postfix etc.
